Maker

Metiisto Chocolate

Metiisto Chocolate is a small batch chocolate maker based in Toowoomba, Australia by Trevor Smith. Originally established in Sweden in 2012, Smith takes advantage of his location by using cacao beans from the Solomon Islands. Smith abides to the ethical notion of recognizing cacao farmers for their hard work and make ensuring they receive fair pay. Metiisto has proudly won multiple awards for their chocolate bars.

Cacao Region

Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands

Guadalcanal Province is located in the southwestern Pacific, northeast of mainland Australia; its island of the same name is the largest in the country. The island is mainly covered in dense tropical rainforest, with a mountainous interior and many small cacao plantations closer to the coast. During WWII, Guadalcanal Island was the scene of the Guadalcanal Campaign, and saw bitter fighting between Japanese and US troops.

Metiisto Tenaru 67%

Medium brown color. Nice snap. Warm mouthfeel. Creamy-fudgy texture. Like some Madagascar origins I’ve tried, the aroma is very chocolatey and vanilla-flavored, with nuances of peanut, citrus, and red fruit. The tasting experience starts with a hint of wood and a delicious roasted peanuts flavor. Think peanut butter cup! Next, it introduces tangy red fruits (sweet and sour cherry taste) against a harmonious, citrusy background. Pleasant sweetness with a subsequent peppery feeling on the tongue then gradually progresses to a warming sensation on the palate and astringency at the bottom of the throat. I spotted a "weird" yet lovely sweet chestnut presence in the second act, clearly making its presence known, while fruitiness maintained its rule over the flavor profile as a whole.
